Community Archives and Heritage Group of the Month

Here at CAHG, we are constantly thrilled by the wonderful groups that make up our membership and, also, the amazing work that you all do. We want to celebrate that each and every month by making one of our member groups the Group of the Month and highlighting the contribution that they make.

If you would like to be considered for group of the month, then the process is really straight forward:

Firstly, ensure you are a current member of CAHG by checking here and completing an application to join if necessary. Then answer the following questions in no more than 200 words.

Community Archives Group of the Month

  • Your entry

  • Why you?

  • Please describe your organisation / group.
  • Tell us about the communities you work with and how you engage with them.
  • Please tell us how you feel your work has contributed to preserving community heritage and/or broadened the appeal of community archives to a wider group of people?
  • Can you provide us with examples of running activities that have beneficial impacts on the physical, mental and social wellbeing of individuals and communities?
  • Do you use a website and/or social media to promote your organisation’s work? If so, please provide details.
  • We would like you to tell us what makes you special? What you do amazingly well or perhaps differently to everyone else? Is there someone working in your group who’s gone the extra mile? We really want to know how you’re showing innovation in areas that are important to you.
  • Accepted file types: doc, docx, Max. file size: 20 MB.

The panel will sit each month to decide the winning group for the following month and will notify all the applicants of whether they are the winner. If you’re unsuccessful, there is nothing to stop you applying again but each month’s winner will have their work highlighted via CAHG’s various communication channels.

At our annual conference one of the last 12 months winners will be awarded an additional title of Community Group of the Year and will be presented with an award at the conference.

We hope you’re inspired to get involved and we’re looking forward to hearing from you.
